As the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings duke it out for California supremacy in the second round of the playoffs, a champ from another sport has already chosen his favourite team.

Turns out California Chrome, the winning horse from last week's 140th Kentucky Derby, is a Ducks fan.

California Chrome was born and raised in Orange County, California and is the first horse to win the Derby from that state since 1962.

The photo was taken at Churchill Downs as California Chrome’s trainers prepare him for the Preakness on May 17.
